Another vote for Sorobon, where textiles were not considered. Naturism is so much easier.

I haven't been to N Resort but we were at Grand Lido Braco a few years back.
It was amazing BUT Jamaica is NOT.
Its terrible when you are advised to take a cab because its unsafe to be out of the resort without one so besides the specific tourist sites that you had to be escorted to or the limitation of the resort itself I felt imprisoned in the resort so I would much sooner travel to Club Orient or numerous other nude resorts or locations in Mexico, Europe or the US.
I should also mention that we ignored the advice of the gate guard and walked out of the resort, hitch hiked to a local bus station and took a bus to the local town. They thought we were nuts ( maybe we were? ) but we met the most amazing locals and had a lot of fun. Having said that, to travel outside the resort with that type of overshadowing made the experience less appealing as risk of problems can dampen the experience and it clearly would not be the thing that everyone would do. We have over 20,000 miles on our thumbs but most of that was a FEW years ago. It was fun putting out the thumb one more time - I think it might be the time to retire the thumb for travel - but you never know and it still works!

I bought almost everything on eBay, probably 15 outfts and 4 pairs of shoes. Most things I bought were only around $20 each. The one that she liked the best was a very thin gauze-like above the knee peasant dress with a rope tie around her waist. It flattered her shape very well and was very light and breezy. She liked wearing something to dinner because she didn't need to carry a towel with her and the outfits she wore made the vinyl cushions on the chairs more comfortable.

We used to rent a car and drive all over the Jamaican countryside/plantation areas in the 70's and walk all over Montego Bay. We never felt a hint of threat day or evening. I guess the Brits has things under control. Haven't been back since, heading mostly to the Virgins and St Maarten. I guess greater independence hasn't resulted in greater tourism safety. We do plan to go to Jamaica but expect the dash from the airport to resort confinement.

Haiti is the sameway now. We stopped in Cap Haiten and took the trip up the Citadel and mingled in town. Very impoverished country but did not feel threatened. Now the cruise ships go to a guarded, fenced compound-------no thanks for caged fun.

Caged fun is a very good description of how I felt in Jamaica and thats why I choose not to return.
The fun is very good inside the cage BUT like all animals in our kingdom sometimes you just want to wander outside the confines of the cage.

I asked our driver on the way to the airport to fly home if there was a problem with crime in the area of N. He replied that most of the crime problem was in other parts of the island, mainly Kingston. One thing he told us that I really liked was that relatively recently the police have taken a strong stand against gang leaders. If they can determine who the leader of a criminal gang is, they will just assassinate him and as many lieutenants as they can. He said that gang problems have dropped considerably, as nobody wants to be the leader and be the one hunted. Also, he said that Jamaica has a 10 most wanted list, but usually as soon as a criminal is named to the 10 most wanted he will immediately give himself up to the authorities. Being one of the 10 most wanted most assuredly means you will be hunted and terminated but by police and military.

Now I know all about due process and blah blah blah, but if you're going to run in those circles and they can tie you to crimes against the people, then you get what you pay for.

Geeeeeeez, that makes me feel better.

I know wayback the Brits in Africa used to send in squads from the Motherland to take guys out.

I guess I miss the fairy tale of 40-50 years ago. I didn'trealize howthey kept order I just know there was order. Like I said greater freedom hasn't broughtgreater safety.

Throughout the Caribean, I'd say things not as controlled as in the past. Not only governing freedom but successive generations may have bred some resentment of their economoic condition and the tourism industry (by some) that they don't want to grow up and be our taxi drivers and maids.

I love the Caribbean and I wish all of the peoples the best ---they defintely have a bit of paradise we do not.

Next week will be our 3rd trip to N in 3 years. The first 2 years their website said that that coverups WERE required in the dining rooms. The first year, Freddy the GM told me that you had to wear "something" in the restaurants. Last year, his attitude was "whatever, do as you please!!" Our friends just came back last week and had travelled with just their airplane clothes. They said that each room had a printed sheet on the table saying that coverups were NO LONGER required in the restaurants, and that they had a stack of clean "bum-towels" at the entrance to each dining room and a bin for used ones. Their website now says Coverups were NOT required. I will be going with only my travel clothes!
